Stop Ruining My Childhood!

Fantasy Island… And Fruit Gushers

June 30, 2022

"The plane! The plane!" This week, we revisit Fantasy Island! 
Fantasy Island started out as a joke made by a frustrated Aaron Spelling as he was pitching ideas to network executives. The executives loved the idea, and so did the public! 

The show ran 152 episodes and two made-for-TV movies over seven years from 1977 to 1984. In the ratings, it never broke into the top 10, but it was popular enough to spawn a reboot series in 1998, a prequel film in 2020, and a sequel series in 2021. 

Tying into our tropical theme this week is our snack, Tropical Fruit Gushers! These fruit gummy treats were all the rage in the 1990s. 

Did the show live up to our expectations? Did the Gushers make us nauseous? Listen to find out!
